The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was an old-time radio show which aired in the USA from October 2, 1939 to July 7, 1947. The show first aired on the Blue Network but later moved to the Mutual Broadcasting System. The radio stories were action packed, filled with atmosphere, and featured great music by Lou Kosloff, as well as excellent sound effects.

Originally, the show starred Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson. Together, they starred in 220 episodes which aired weekly on Mondays from 8:30 to 9:00pm. Commercialism seeped into the radio show from the start, as Watson himself, played by various actors, took on the co-host role with a spokesman for G. Washington Tea as a visitor ready to hear a Holmes story. Before a blazing fire with tea always at the brew, Watson reminiscences the great tales between comments on how good the tea is! Bromo Quinine sponsored some of the earlier programs on the NBC Blue Network and for a period Parker Pen was the sponsor.

Basil Rathbone's last episode as the famous detective was "The Singular Affair of the Baconian Cipher." He was eager to separate himself from the cast type of Holmes, and even though the show's sponsor Petri Wine offered him generous pay to continue, he decided to move on. Once he did, the sponsor did as well, and Tom Conway took the starring role, though Nigel Bruce got top billing and was always announced first. The new sponsor was Kreml Hair Tonic for Men, and the new series only lasted 39 episodes.

In 1955, NBC re-ran the transcribed BBC series of the original great Conan Doyle stories with the fine actors Sir John Gielgud as Holmes, and Sir Ralph Richardson as Watson, and in "The Final Problem," Orson Welles as Moriarty.

For American radio, the heroine of Holmes on the radio was Edith Meiser, an actress who loved the stories and was convinced they would make great listening. She scripted several Conan Doyle stories and took them around. NBC liked them, but had no sponsor ready. Meiser Shopped for a sponsor for the show herself, and went back to the network triumphantly. Beginning in the early 1930's, she single-handed wrote the show for over a dozen years, first working from the Conan Doyle canon, and then continuing to create stories in the spirit of the originals.

Subject: great series, but not worth the trouble
I've heard individual episodes and I was planning on downloading the series, but there are no broadcast dates or "track" numbers in the tags.
I just don't have the time to try to get all of the episodes in proper order.
Too bad :^(

Subject: Radio Bliss
For sheer listening pleasure, nothing compares to sitting in my
darkened kitchen in the wee hours here in the south of France, sipping a glass of wine (not Petri) and enjoying the adventures of the immortal Holmes and Watson. Yes, it is a shame the episodes are not chronological, but c'est la vie. Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce
are by far the best - the real thing.

Reviewer: Donald Motley - - July 24, 2013
Subject: Too bad about the episode list's alphabetical order
Yet another promising collection spoiled by a collector's mania for alphabetical order in the episode list.

At the end of each episode is a teaser of the next week's story, and that's the one I want to hear next time I "tune in". If I needed to find a particular episode title, it would be easy enough to scroll down a chronological list, but to untangle broadcast order from alphabetical is really tedious.

Please, collectors, give us broadcast-date order! Alphabetical order is worse than useless.

Subject: Found the 16kbps episodes
The 125+ zip file contained 46 files at 64kbps rate. I found 101 16kbps files elsewhere on my hard drive under a folder named "sherlockholmesOTRkibmseries." Apparently the 16kbps folder is no longer on the archive or has been replaced by the other compilations. Would be nice if a certified or comprehensive VBR folder would tie all these great Sherlock OTR episodes together.

Subject: Missing information and shows
The otrsite has serious gaps as shown by the Sherlock Holmes Adventures Podcast via iTunes.

For example, that podcast provides Shoscombe Old Place starring Hobbs & Shelley but the otrsite gives no indication as any such story even existing.

This means that if like me you try to organize the shows by airdate (to better capture that feeling of old time radio) you are at time mystified as to where an episode goes.

Also the heavy-handedness of the sponsor and corny and cheesy plots is as much a part of the shows are the well written plots. Even Conan Doyle muffed it as seen with "The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone" and not putting those shows up out of what in the end is personal views is IMHO not fair to those with different tastes.

Subject: The Case of the Neglected Farm 30 Jan 1983
Not a Sherlock Holmes detective radio show.

The following is cut and pasted from
http://www.cambridge-explorer.org.uk/HBWEB/VV341/Second-Holmes.htm

The Second Holmes
BBC Radio 4 - 1983
--------------------------------------
Starring Peter Egan as Stamford Holmes &
Jeremy Nicholas as Dr Watson
--------------------------------------
Written by Grant Eustace
Produced by Paul Mayhew-Archer
--------------------------------------
SECOND HOLMES was a series of six shows brought to radio by the
British Broadcasting Corporation in early 1983. These were humorous
cases of detective Stamford Holmes, the grandson of Sherlock Holmes (???),
played by Peter Egan and his counterpart, Dr. Watson, the grandson
of Sherlock Holmes's companion, played by Jeremy Nicholas.

Stamford Holmes is a reluctant consulting detective in a modern age
where the crimes are mundane, not offering challenge. Although he
has his grandfather's ability to see detail and use them to arrive
at conclusions, he gets quickly bored by his cases. Were it not for
Dr. Watson pushing and prodding him, Holmes would be off on some other
enterprise. Watson is more the romantic, longing to participate in
detective adventures of the days of grandfather, believing the cases
at hand will prove Holmes' worth.

Ref Title Date
C38301 The Case of the Grandfather's Client 03 Jan 1983
C38302 The Case of the Maltese Pearls 09 Jan 1983
C38303 The Case of the Reading Undertaker 16 Jan 1983
C38304 The Case of the Shadowed Minister 23 Jan 1983
C38305 The Case of the Neglected Farm 30 Jan 1983
C38306 The Case of the Missing Link 06 Feb 1983

There were other sites with more info, but this is sufficient.

I had 12 of these Gielgud/Richardson episodes on cassette as a kid and loved them. Now I have them again. Several had different titles, like The Dying Detective is Rare Disease and Charles Milverton is The Yatsey Case. Nice sound quality--better than my worn out cassettes.
